Fujifilm X-T30 vs Sony a6400

Chris and Jordan from DPReview TVcompared the Fujifilm X-T30 and the Sony a6400. Here are their findings:

  • the vast majority of people buy APS-C and not full frame in mid-priced mirrorless market range

Ergonomics and Controls
Winner: Fujifilm X-T30

  • biggest advantage for the Fujifilm X-T30 are the dial controls and ergonomics
  • Fujifilm X-T30 front and back dials are much easier to use than Sony a6400 dials

Winner: Sony a6400

  • VIDEO
  • Fujifilm X-T30 has stepped up in a big way, with nice video results, if you customize heavily for the situation

Image Quality
Winner: tie

  • Sony a6400 color profiles are boring and not fun to use

  • Fujifilm X-T30 has better skin tones
  • With Fujifilm X-T30 it is easier to get great colors
  • Fuji sensor is newer, faster readout hence less rolling shutter, great if you use silent shutter or video

DJI Ronin S to add Fujifilm X-T3 Support

Share

DJI Ronin S

The DJI Ronin S is a very popular 3-Axis Gimbal stabilizer (check out the AmazonUS customer reviews), and so it is no surprise that I keep up getting questions about if it finally will support Fujifilm cameras.

Finally today I can give you an answer. :)

FR-reader Mario (Instagram at @ummario) informed me that DJI now officially said on their forum, they are working on a firmware update to add Fujifilm X-T3 support.

I looks like the stellar Fujifilm X-T3 sales convinced DJI that it might be worth the effort!
